Drive By

I know I still have 2 Giveways remaining to announce, but life kind of blew up this week. Nothing bad, just busy, busy. I'll catch up on everything when I get back. I'm off tomorrow for a long weekend at mom's and to see the Marine and my sister/BIL.

I did finish the USMC purse for hire and it's going in the mail on the way to the airport. Here's the finished product (name blurred to protect the innocent still at boot camp!!):








See you Tuesday or shortly thereafter. Semper Fi!

  3. Enjoy your trip! How kind of you to make the bag, even though it's "for hire". Once I've done a project it's very hard for me to get motivated to replicate it. I'm a one trick pony. LOL

  4. The bag looks wonderful. I know you did thins on comission...would you do it again? I could see other Marine moms waning one. You could be in demand--do you think you could earn a little extra income don g this? Would you want to?

  7. What a gorgeous bag and what a great use of the pockets, flaps, etc. Any ambitions to put out directions for how to do this with similar garments? hmmmm? (hint, hint)

  9. Have fun! We'll be waiting to hear about your latest adventure when you get back!

    The bags are amazing. I love the repurposed fabric and how functional they look. I bought a book at the Borders closeout called The Bag Making Bible -- finally realized that I was too picky and just needed to start making my own purses. Wish me luck....

  11. That bag is fabulous. I think you are really on to something here and could make and sell these till the cows come home. Any proud Mom or wife would love this bag.

  12. Almost all of my sewing involves purses and bags, and it looks to me like you did a great job! Did you mention the pattern you used? And I think this must be the year of life's blow ups! I have to wonder just how the planets are aligned and hope to hell they are positioned differently next year!

Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
